Malvidin chloride (MC) a colouring agent from flowers of Malvaviscus conzattii Greenum was studied for male anti-fertility effects in adult langur monkeys (Presbytis entellus entellus Dufresne). When fed 50 mg MC kg-1 for a period of 60 days, inhibition of spermatogenesis resulted. The weights of testes and epididymides were reduced and there was atrophy of the Leydig cells. In the epididymis, epithelial cell heights were reduced after MC-treatment. Conspicuous shrinkage of seminiferous tubules… Expand
Antiandrogenic effects of a flavonoid-rich fraction of Vitex negundo seeds: a histological and biochemical study in dogs.
TLDR
Simultaneous administration of testosterone propionate to F-treated intact adult and castrated prepubertal dogs maintained the viability of spermatozoa, kept epididymal physiology relatively normal and significantly increased the cellular heights of epididysmides. Expand
Effects of aqueous extracts of Hibiscus macranthus and Basella alba in mature rat testis function.
TLDR
From these findings and observation, it was concluded that the aqueous extract of H. macranthus and B. alba had anabolizing and virilizing effects. Expand
Epididymal markers in rats exposed to the xenoestrogen p‐nonylphenol: no biochemical effects at low dosages
Summary. Harmful micro‐ and macroscopic effects of the environmental xenoestrogen p‐nonylphenol (p‐NP) on the male rat reproductive system have been previously reported. In our study, biochemicalExpand

EVALUATION OF TOXIC EFFECT OF 2,4-D (2,4-DICHLOROPHENOXYACETIC ACID) ON FERTILITY AND BIOCHEMICAL PARAMETERS OF MALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM OF ALBINO RATS Research Article
TLDR
There was a significant decrease in the weight of testes and sex accessories, and reduction in sperm counts both in epididymis and testes in treated animals. Expand
GOSSYPOL CONTENT ON LEAVES AND SEEDS FROM SOME WILD MALVACEAE SPECIES.
Ten Malvaceae species were analysed for their seed and leaf gossypol content by HPLC. The results showed that gossypol is common in most of the Malvaceae family, but its concentration varies amongExpand
Fertility Regulation in Male Rats by Implemented Tetraazamacrocyclic Compounds of Iron(II): Synthetic, Spectroscopic, and Applied Aspects With Toxicological Screening
TLDR
Antifertility and histopathological investigations were carried out on reproductive organs of male albino rats induced by tetraazamacrocyclic complexes of iron(II) by elemental analysis, conductivity measurements, IR, and electronic spectra. Expand
Chapter 19. Male Contraception
TLDR
Though effective contraception can be obtained, using steroid therapy, side-effects, and/or the high cost of treatment limit the widespread use of these approaches. Expand

The effect of cryptorchidism on the quantitative histology, histochemistry and hydrolytic enzyme activity of the rat testis.
TLDR
It is suggested that the initial lesion in the seminiferous epithelium, produced by cryptorchidism is in the Sertoli cell and that germ cell damage may result from reduced function of the SERToli cell. Expand
Semen characteristics of gossypol-treated langurs (Presbytis entellus entellus Dufresne).
TLDR
The semen characteristics returned to normal levels during a 180-day recovery period following the discontinuation of gossypol treatment, indicating a clear relationship exists between the inhibition of sperm cell motility and dose as well as duration of gOSSYPol treatment. Expand
Comparative physiology of the mammalian epididymis.
TLDR
Hormonal homeostasis for the maintenance of the functions of the epididymis may involve not only free testosterone and its metabolites but also estosterone bound to androgen binding proteins. Expand
Fertility control in male rats by continuous release of microquantities of cyproterone acetate from subcutaneous silastic capsules
TLDR
The results show that continuous release of cyproterone acetate at doses too low to inhibit testicular and androgenic function altered the internal milieu of the epididymis resulting in loss of motility and viability of sperm. Expand

TLDR
It has been shown that the degenerating germ cells, which occur as a result of oestrogen treatment, are phagocytosed by the Sertoli cells, accompanied by a considerable increase in the lipid content of the SERToli cells coincident with marked spermatogenetic activity. Expand
Short term metabolic effects of the anti-fertility agent, gossypol, on various reproductive organs of male mice.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that gossypol will decrease sperm count at high dose levels after treatment of male mice for as short as 10 days and has dramatic inhibitory effects on protein and nuclei acid metabolism in the secondary sex organs. Expand

TLDR
Gossypol is an effective antispermatogenic agent for certain susceptible animals and humans and represents the only approach which has a reasonable chance to reach the stage of large scale clinical testing before the end of this decade. Expand
